Oldendorff rolls out SMARTFLEET technology

Oldendorff Carriers has reached an agreement with BMT SMART, a subsidiary of BMT Group, to roll out the SMARTFLEET fleet performance management platform along with a vessel data collection system to drive improved efficiency in the operation of Oldendorff’s ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Oldendorff recognised the potential benefits of implementing fleet and vessel performance monitoring. The innovative solutions BMT SMART offer to the maritime industry bring together the traditional practice of good ship operating and the impressive power of Big Data analytics,” said Christopher Fee, projects manager at Oldendorff Carriers.

“This supports our quest to further improve the technical and operational efficiency of our modern fleet of eco-ships. The project we are running with BMT acts as a cornerstone of our Green Ship Programme and we are very proud of what we’ve achieved together.”

“The fuel we save through utilising SMARTFLEET in our daily operations not only reflects well on our bottom line but, most importantly, is a huge win for the environment, since less CO2 is emitted per voyage. We believe this truly reflects our commitment to continuously reducing our carbon footprint, and through such types of initiatives actively supports Oldendorff’s sustainable shipping objectives.”

The system provides automated analytics to proactively highlight areas of concern, whether technical or operational, to allow Oldendorff to address the issues as early as possible. Further in-depth analysis support is provided by BMT under a managed fleet performance agreement.

“There is much talk about the digital revolution within the shipping industry; however, there are very few real-life programmes being implemented which truly demonstrate a long-term commitment towards driving change in the way shipping operates,” said Peter Mantel, managing director of BMT SMART.

“Only by collaborating closely with Oldendorff can we provide them with a turnkey data management solution that delivers their desired outcomes.”{/mprestriction}
